Free period products for Islanders launched

19 October 2022

​As part of the Council of Ministers 100 Day Plan, the Government has launched its scheme to provide free period products to Islanders.

The aim of this scheme is to make sure that families and individuals do not have to worry about being able to afford period products. 

The scheme has been developed in two parts: 

  • A pilot scheme has been launched to make sure that women, girls and anyone else who needs them, can have reasonable access to free period products. In doing so the Government also aims to address period poverty, ensure period dignity, and remove stigma around the subject of periods. Products are available from Jersey Library (town and Communicare), Les Quennevais Sports Centre, Fort Regent Sports Centre and Customer and Local Services at La Motte Street 
  • A public consultation to gain feedback from Islanders on the types of products and locations they would like to see as part of the full roll-out next year. The consultation will be live until 25 November 2022 and Islanders can have their say by completing a short survey 

Minister for Social Security, Deputy Elaine Millar said: “I am delighted we are launching this scheme and as part of the pilot are providing period products in locations across the Island. No one should feel embarrassed or feel they are unable to go to school or work because they do not have the period products they need. 

“I would encourage Islanders to take part in the consultation so they can have their say and help us to provide the right products, making them accessible in the right locations as part of our full roll out next year. I want to make sure we are removing any stigma around periods and normalising this in our community. 

"We will be actively communicating this message through our marketing campaign over the coming weeks to make sure we are sharing the message and raising visibility of the scheme.”
